A year before I met my husband I had just gone through my 1,245th break up 😂🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️.
I sat with a male friend who was a great catch who was engaged to the love of his life. And I said letting go of my last thread of hope, “Do you think I’m too crazy for anyone to ever be with me?”
He looked at me and smiled, with his entire heart, and he said, with every confidence in his body, “Krystal - You are going to meet someone and he is going to love you BECAUSE OF the exact way you are.”
I went on my own journey to making myself happy, (cause as type a control freak, that was all I had control over 😂) and along the way I met Lasse.
Early on when we were dating, I remember a moment when I was “being myself” and then suddenly I got a little self conscious and I said to him, “Babe do you think I’m crazy?” (My heart dropped waiting for the response.)
He looked at me and smiled just like my friend before had, with his entire heart, and with every conviction in his body he lit up and said, “GOOD crazy! And that’s exactly why I love you. You’re so different and interesting and unique. You make life special.”
And I find myself telling this story when I do talks. The world can make us, “different” people feel like there’s something wrong with us bc we’re not like everyone else.
But that’s what makes us so special. That’s to be loved and cherished and nurtured. And that’s exactly why the person who you’re meant to be with will love you exactly the way you are, and why it couldn’t be anyone else for them.
My wish is for us all to surround ourselves with people who see that light, who see and shine our own magnificence back to us so we can bloom into it and own it even more and do the same for others.
Happy anniversary to this guy. Thank you for helping me see and love my true self. Love you (almost as much as you love Louie.) ❤️
